Jesus was on his way to Jerusalem. Traveling from Galilee to Samaria,
he came into a small town. Ten men met him there. These men did not come close to Jesus, because they all had a harmful skin disease.
But they called to him, “Jesus! Master! Please help us!”
When Jesus saw the men, he said, “Go and show yourselves to the priests.”While the ten men were going, they were healed.
When one of them saw that he was healed, he went back to Jesus. He praised God in a loud voice.
Then he bowed down at Jesus’ feet and thanked him. (This man was a Samaritan.)
Jesus asked, “Ten men were healed; where are the other nine?
Is this Samaritan the only one who came back to thank God?”
Then Jesus said to him, “Stand up and go on your way. You were healed because you believed.”
